how to use , and test) variables for stops in ninja

Will Ninja ( in the user interface) allow me to create a variable based on an indicators output?
For example if I want to use the entry ATR level as a stop level there does not seem to be anyway to do that.
It should be a simple task of taking the output of the ATR and assigning it as a variable.

I think I should be able to do this with any indicator. I could set my stop to parabolic sar level and use that as a stop.

I can't see how to do this. But I am pretty certain that it should not be that hard or require any fancy programming.

Basically I am thinking of ATR as in indicator or noise level. I want to test my entry systems, but avoid being stopped by random noise. So if I set the stop to ATR I should avoid most none trend changing reverse price movements.

Does anyone know how to do this? I keep trying to find a way in the interface, but have been unsuccessful. Thanks for any information

reply atr stop

Hello Mcteague,

I'm on the same subject,
just seen your question.
May be very late,
I tried to find about the same as you,
an ATR volatility stop.
Did you receive answer to your question.
If yes, did you receive it from BigMike forum.
And is it possible for me to get it.

If you didn't get answer.
I tried to find it on my side and can't.

But I found something could help you.
It's on ninjacators site.
Cost little buck, (around 97$)but if you can't find it free,
and if it's what you want.
They call "ATR trailing stop"

I got an indicator from them who work as promise.
I'll try little more to find it free,
if not, may be will buy it soon.

I think the real answer for me and perhaps for others is to not be so lazy and go and learn a little C#. Probably (just guessing) most of these types of problems would be easily solved after reading one basic instructional text, and practicing for a month.

Have you looked at Ninja's strategy wizard? It may be able to help you get what you need before plunging down the programming path. Also have you looked in the (formerly BMT) download section? There may be some examples or indicators to do what you need? (i haven't looked for you so i don't know myself but I do know there is a LOT of helpful indicators and strategies there)
